    Has anyone lost a Tifosi road bike around south east London?

    PM me with a description.

    YouTube is pretty good to give you an idea of stuff. Try to do an hour as the warm up bits and relaxation at the end are all part of the process of getting your joints and muscles to move.

    Be careful if you are hypermobile. Just be aware if you are to protect your joints and don’t over stretch them. Look it up and test each joint.

    Also, this guy is great: https://www.instagram.com/p/B0ZcKhTAd5R/­?igshid=16x28eieic9dg

    Dr.Jacob.Harden if the link doesn’t work. It might be more realistic for some to do his mobilisations and strengthening rather then a whole yoga/Pilates session.

    Weekly yoga or pilates helps with comfort on the bike. Having a stronger core and some flexibility in your hips is what you are aiming for. Once you can ride 200km the rest is just sitting on the bike.

    Does anyone recognise this bike?

    I lost the buckle to my Giro helmet at Dreux on PBP. Just the male end bit. At the time I thought that Giro would happily pop one in the post but, unfortunately, they won't.

    I'm hoping that someone has an old or knackered helmet that they don't mind separating from their little plastic buckle thing.

    I've got the end that you stick the clasp in.

    Any clip would do. I’ll take a pic later on and see what you think. Much appreciated, btw.

    I lost a purple merino alpkit base layer. Women’s in size 14, I think. And a little clasp for my Giro helmet, which I doubt anyone would hand in. Lost that at Dreux control.

    I’ve emailed Giro but they say that the don’t sell replacements so I’ll probably have to buy a new helmet.

    When you initially passed me I was dead. I did some sums and realised I was going to miss my control time so got a move on and was so pleased when you realised I was running out of time joined in to get me in on time. It felt epic.
